For Honor Review

Fantasy brawls between iconic characters and historical empires have long helped fuel late night discussions between friends. For Honor pits Vikings, Knights, and Samurai together in an eternal war with each other. But how did these factions end up in the same timeline? The game does explain this in the opening cutscene before allowing access to the main menu, but it is glossed over rather than fully explained; a natural disaster occurred that resulted in lava spewing everywhere and parts of the world lost forever. The lava remains in some areas of the world but really, For Honor isn’t about how this happened, more what happens next and I was all too keen to find out.

Vaccine Review

Finding a vaccine within a certain time limit is a trope that is used lots by those in film and TV. It brilliantly builds the tension, sees our hero running from action encounter, to car chase and to a rooftop fight in order to deliver the vaccine and save the world. Rainy Night Creations use the the same thought process behind their brand new game, Vaccine, with one hero trying to find a cure for a terrible ailment to their partner. But does it excite and do you care one jot if the diseased survive?

Trulon: The Shadow Engine Review

Are you ready for an adventure? Well, that appears to be what you’re going to get with Trulon: The Shadow Engine, a self-confessed adventurous RPG set in a magical steampunk world. Developers Kyy Games have thrown in a unique card combat system to help it stand out from the numerous RPGs on the market. And, as it’s a spinoff from the Trulon novel, one would expect a decent story to be present too. So, given that Trulon: TSE has all these elements combined, is it as good as it all sounds on paper, or is it let down in the execution phase?

Riptide GP Renegade Review

The Riptide GP series has been a mainstay on mobile platforms for a number of years now, but Renegade is the first in the series to be built specifically for consoles as well. After the success of the Riptide GP 2 port, how does the third game in the series handle?

Chime Sharp Review

I really have no issues with the easy-to-learn, hard-to-master gameplay model. What I do find rather annoying are those which are hard to learn, and even harder to master. Especially when the thing you're trying your best to understand gives you no hints or tips, refuses to hold your hand and is happy to spit you out at the very first opportunity. That’ll be Chime Sharp then.

Battle Islands: Commanders Review

Calling all soldiers, it’s time to report for duty! Many of you will no doubt have piled hours and hours into the original free-to-play title Battle Islands, managing your resources to build a suitable base to defend and subsequently launch attacks from. Now there’s a follow up to it, Battle Islands: Commanders, which is yet another World War II strategy game. Developers DR Studios are no strangers to the free-to-play model, but will they be able to provide gamers with another WWII strategy game, whilst also offering something different from what we’ve seen already?

Halo Wars 2 Review

Real-time strategy games on console are relatively hard to come by. The nature of this genre generally lends itself better to the precision and accuracy afforded to PC gamers. Being able to tactically divide up your units and wage war on a few different fronts is a huge plus in any RTS, and Halo Wars 2 is no different. With a variety of game modes for you to sink your teeth into, it’s a well-fleshed out game and even with micro-transactions included, is by no means a money grabber.

Enigmatis 2: The Mists of Ravenwood Review

Cast your mind back to the point and click puzzler Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek, a tale following a detective hot on the trail of a missing girl – unsurprisingly set in Maple Creek. It turned out the whole town was under the spell of an evil preacher, who had sacrificed others to dark arts. In the end he escaped, and so it’d only be right to see a sequel appear for what was arguably the best Hidden Object game on the Xbox One at the time. Those are big shoes to fill for Enigmatis 2: The Mists of Ravenwood.

Vertical Drop Heroes HD Review

Vertical Drop Heroes was something of a phenomenon. Arriving as a quick web-based time waster, the original game became a blockbusting hit for Nerdook, the one man developer behind it all. Now though, the Vertical Heroes are back, with a full HD version giving the game a huge makeover. It promises to be bigger, it promises to better, and it promises to be more epic than ever before. But is it? In a word. Yes.

Typoman Review

The power of words is a remarkable thing. They can start wars, engage you in romances, win arguments, decide futures and even kill. They can also engage, illuminate, educate and inspire, and in the same breath, anger, annoy and offend. Well that’s enough talk about my reviewing style, so let's instead concentrate on Brainseed Factory's hit game, Typoman.
